"Smile" as written by and Charles Chaplin....
Open the door and let your love come down
Over the wall, you're spinning 'round and 'round
'Cause you wanted some love
I'll make it happen

'Cause I don't want to break
Your fine face, I can't take
The way you want to wrap me up
Inside your smile

Open your heart and let the good stuff out
Water me girl and let me ease the drought
Because you wanted some love
I'll make it happen

'Cause I don't want to break
Your fine face, I can't take
The way you want to wrap me up
Inside your smile

I can't be gone, darling
For very long, no
Never know what you're going to do
Standing there deep in front of you
Take a look in between my eyes because I'm back, yeah

'Cause I don't want to break
Your fine face, I can't take
The way you want to wrap me up
Inside your smile

I can't be gone, darling
For very long, no
Never know what you're going to do
Standing there deep in front of you
Take a look in between my eyes because I'm back, yeah

Give me a chance if you can force yourself
Look at me girl and get up off your shelf
Because you wanted some love
I'll make it happen

    General CommentHave you ever missed someone for so long it seemed like an eternity ...

    ... and then finally seen their smile?

    It's like the sun breaking through the clouds on a winter day. And someone has finally put this sensation into lyrics and music. It's "Smile" by Weezer.

    General CommentI think its about a guy who desperately wants to be with a girl. She's uncertain about the relationship and is "spinning 'round and 'round". He tries to convince her that he can make her feel loved ("you wanted some love, i'll make it happen") and possibly he is attracted to her because of her smile. "I can't take the way you wanna wrap me up inside your smile". Seems like a nice little love song to me. :)

    General CommentI think GuitarBoy hit it on the nose. Reminds me of my current crush. Been hurt so much in the past that she doesn't know if she can love again, but people like Rivers who believe in love still have hope and they know deep down that things can work. All it takes are people who will try.

    General CommentI think GuitarBoy definitely got the meaning.

    It reminds me of the girl that I am in love with. She has the most beautiful smile and in dreams, I am wrapped up in it. In reality, however, she doesn't really care about me the same way and refuses to give me a chance to go out with her.

    If she wanted some love, I would make it happen. I will wait for her as long as it takes.

    See, it is possible for Green Album-era songs to contain meaning.

    General CommentI heard this song early, when the album was leaked. When I first heard it I thought instead of saying "your fine face. I can't take," Rivers was saying "your fine ways of sucking dick". Ever since then, I thought this song was about giving head. It's totally plausible though.
